We had a perfect 3 night stay to get away from the madness at the end of 2020. Stunning facilities. Accommodating staff. Fun 4x4-ing. Tranquility of note. Loved every minute and can certainly recommend a visit for locals and internationals!
We rented stoneyvale for a family holiday. What a beautiful venue. Accommodation was lovely and the location..couldn't ask for anything better. Sean took us on a game drive..by far the best one we have been on!! Will definitely go back.
3 nights at the cottage, was lovely. Great seeing the 2 ostriches every morning. The hostess and husband was especially very helpful and kind, even have us oil since we forgot to buy some for the stay. Highly Recommended for a peaceful getaway.
We stayed at Stoneyvale for the first night of our anniversary road trip from Durban and what a beautiful little treat it was. Fully off the grid and just pure magic. Jo was so friendly and helpful, we just wish we could’ve stayed longer. We’ll definitely be back soon!
My husband wanted to take me away for the weekend for my birthday. So I immediately got stuck into finding the perfect place. I had a list of things it must have; it must be clean, it must have self-catering options, it must be enough of a drive for us to feel we had gone away but not so much of a drive that we felt we had spent more time in the car. It had to have a view, a king size bed, an aircon, a swimming pool. It had to be restful, peaceful welcoming. It took me days to find my selection and then email asking for more information and to then eventually whittle down my list of possible places. Fort Governor's Estate was the chosen venue and on Friday we set off from East London. It took us 2hrs travel time to get there and when we stepped into our cottage it was as if we had entered a parallel universe. One where we were sheltered from all intrusions and where our comfort was of paramount importance. Needless to say the cottage and estate met all of my requirements and then some. It was clean, fully fitted for self-catering options, aircon that works off solar power so guilt free cool air, perfect size swimming pool. Being able to sleep with our doors open was such a treat, listening to the sounds of the evening and watching the stars display their brilliance was soul rejuvenating. Jo has thought of every little thing to ensure her guests comfort and when it was time to leave we seriously considered staying longer. On the Saturday afternoon we went on a game drive led by Sean - it was the very best game drive I have ever been on. Sean's engaging personality and the delight that he so patently takes in pointing out highlights of the trip contributes to the awesome experience that this game drive was. He showed us a treasure that we would only have been able to see in 1 other place on the planet and so we were very fortunate! My husband and I, on our trip back counted how many things we had learnt on the drive and were astounded to realise just how educational this drive had been - without us ever feeling that we were being educated! We had an amazing time and are already consulting our calendars to see when we can go again.…
